Tanroagan, simply translated as Shell (Tan) Scallop (Roagan) from Manx Gaelic. The Mowat family who are the present owners of Tanroagan, took over the reins from local chef and fisherman Butch Buttery in April 2006. The following day the restaurant hosted TV celebrities, the Hairy Bikers and has gone on to welcome many visiting celebrities over the years with the Island being a popular destination for film and tv show producers. Despite a refurbishment of the kitchen and the introduction of homemade bread, ice-creams and desserts, not a lot was changed from the early days of Tanroagan. That was until November 2013 when it was decided a complete refurbishment of the restaurant was much overdue. If you walk into Tanroagan today it is almost unrecognisable from its former self. Immediately as you approach the restaurant you will see a brand new front with ceiling to floor windows, patio doors and a contemporary fascade ready to welcome you inside. The scarred and creaky wooden floor boards have been replaced by a beautiful Spanish tiled floor with built in underfloor heating. The walls have received new coats of paint and some walls cladded with beautifully textured recycled wood. The same recycled wood, sourced from Hastings in Kent, has been used to create all new table tops, no one table top is the same with each piece of wood telling its own story. Finally, the lighting has been much improved with a new lighting feature taking centre stage in the middle of the ceiling. The collection of illuminated glass globes creates a fantastic focal point in the new Tanroagan. Tanroagan takes great pride in its status as a culinary ambassador for Manx Seafood and locally sourced produce. The recent refurbishment has been well received and loved by customers and staff alike. On behalf of the Mowat family and staff we hope you enjoy your visit to Tanroagan restaurant.

Isle of Man Seafood

Located in the middle of the Irish Sea it is no wonder the Isle of Man boasts some of the very best fish and seafood in the British Isles. Famous locally and around the world for its delicious Manx Scallops, Queenies and Lobsters, the Island has become an established destination for foodies looking for a great culinary experience as well enjoying the fantastic scenery and heritage the Isle of Man has to offer. There is simply no better place to experience the delights of the sea than at Tanroagan, the Islands long established and only specialist seafood restaurant where fresh seafood really is the dish of the day.
